Details

Discover Self is the first step under Discover Module of Transition Planning Program. The idea of self-discovery is dominated by two aspects – self assessment and validation. This step does not assess what career is right or suitable for an individual. It only provides information on individual skills/ traits in terms of how well does the individual score on each one of them through self-assessment and through a multi-rater feedback. The individual is able to see how different people in the network perceive him on different skills/ traits and how their rating may be significantly different from individuals rating of self.Transform purports to assess the skills/ traits that are relevant for the world of work, as identified by World Economic Forum and use assessment technique that allows multi-rater 360 Degree Feedback for robust/ reliable assessment. The platform also allows a separate assessment to identify individual’s RIASEC codes for correlating the traits with occupations.

21st Century Skills

To thrive in a rapidly evolving, technology-mediated world, individuals must not only possess strong skills in areas such as language arts, mathematics and science, but they must also be adept at skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, persistence, collaboration and curiosity. Changes in the labour market have heightened the need for all individuals, and not just a few, to have these skills. In countries around the world, economies run on creativity, innovation and collaboration. Transform allows an individual to obtain multi-source feedback on 21st Century Skills identified by World Economic Forum.

360 Degree Feedback

360-degree feedback, also known as multi-source feedback or multi source assessment, is a process utilized to solicit information from a variety of sources on an individual’s traits. Information solicited in a 360-degree feedback process includes inputs from self, peers, juniors and seniors. 360-degree feedback is so named because it solicits feedback regarding an individual’s behavior from a variety of points of view. 360-degree feedback is primarily used for developmental purposes, providing it to individuals to assist them in developing work skills and behaviors.

Transform Transition Management Model does subscribe to standardized self-assessment tests as the results can be confounded by many factors including and not limited to regional/ cultural differences, educational background and interpretation of the test questions.

Holland Codes (RIASEC)

The Holland Codes or the Holland Occupational Themes (RIASEC) refers to a theory of careers and vocational choice that was initially developed by American psychologist John L. Holland Professor Emeritus of Sociology at Johns Hopkins University.

In terms of the structure of the world of work, individuals need to understand how a particular sector/field of work has multiple industries/ cluster under it and how each industry/ cluster has several career pathways and how that further segregates into professional/ skilled jobs. For example, it is important to know that being a Pilot is a Skilled Job under the Aviation Industry which is a part of the Transportation Sector.
